Fire Country by David Estes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fire Country is the first book in The Country Saga which is the sister series to The Dwellers. What a great start!! If you like the dystopian genre, then this is the book for you.
Sienna lives in a very harsh environment where the air she breathes is toxic. It greatly reduces her life span. Her people, the Heaters, have made it law to force women starting at the age of sixteen to have children in the hope of sustaining their people. These women are called Bearers. Sienna will soon be sixteen and is not looking forward to it. She accidently finds out that her father, who is a leader of the Heaters, is hiding secrets that could change their lives. What will Sienna do with this information? Is she strong enough to make a difference?
David Estes does an excellent job creating a story that will capture your attention. It is action packed and full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Sienna is my favorite character. She starts off as a small awkward girl but learns that she can make a difference. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would definitely recommend it!
